Big Gums

In the case of large gums, the goal is to reduce the size of the gums so that they are in proportion to the teeth. This is achieved by removing gum tissue and redefining the contour of the gums.

Gum Reshaping

Small Gums

For small gums, the purpose is to increase the size of the gums so that they appear fuller and more proportionate to the teeth. To achieve this, a gingival tissue graft is performed. A crown lengthening technique can also be used.

Asymmetric gums

Gum Reshaping

In this case, gingivoplasty helps correct unevenness and create a symmetrical smile. This is accomplished by removing gum tissue in areas where the gums are too large and adding gum tissue where they are too small.

Gum recession
